Lake Hanson, Cradle Mountain, Tasmania, Australia. by 

The wind was blowing and it was starting to rain when I took this picture from Hanson’s Saddle in Autumn,2009. The Fagus and Pencil Pines looked beautiful on the shore of the lake. Nothofagus Gunnii,or Deciduous Beech, is the only winter deciduous plant in Australia and is a wonderful sight in Autumn. The walk up from Dove Lake carpark is steep and rocky but only takes about forty minutes and the views from the saddle are spectacular ! …….Taken with my Nikon Coopix 5700.

I live in Tumut at the base of the Snowy Mountains in N.S.W. I travel to Tasmania quite often to photograph the wonderful landscapes and plant life, unique to this beautiful island state. Fungi, mosses and lichens are my particular interest. I hope that you enjoy looking at the results of my wonderful photographic journey!

    Lovely composition and colours – the splash of orange Fagus gives a real zing to the picture.
    I’m grateful for all those intrepid souls who go walking and photographing in places I can’t go. Without you I would not see such beauty.

  • thanks Susie,
    Tasmania sure is a beautiful place.Every time I visit I discover more areas to photograph and enjoy.
